Scottsdale businessman chosen to replace Waring

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has appointed a Scottsdale man to the Arizona Senate.

Attorney and businessman Ed Bunch is a Republican. He replaces former Republican Sen. Jim Waring, who resigned last month to run for Congress.

Bunch co-owns a printing equipment manufacturing company and has served on the board of a nonprofit that helps in adoptions and family counseling.

Bunch has said he will not run for the seat in November.

Supervisors on Feb. 8 appointed David Braswell to replace former Sen. Pamela Gorman. They have not yet named a replacement for Rep. Sam Crump.

Waring, Gorman and Crump are all seeking the GOP nomination to replace Rep. John Shadegg in the U.S. House. Shadegg announced last month he will retire at the end of his term.
